Phantom injuries

Yesterday, I woke up and my knee hurt. I didn't do anything to make it that way, it just hurt. Okay, I can deal with that. Today, I woke up and my knee is swollen and I can hardly stand on it without excrutiating pain. I threw a tensor on it and went to work, which makes it so I can stand, but still hurts if I sit too long. I have no idea how this happened. Tomorrow, my leg will either fall off or I will be fine.

  1. You'll be fine. Either that, or your leg will fall off. Or else the swelling'll be down a little. Or maybe it'll hurt less but be more swollen, or less swollen and more painful. Or you'll discover the spider that bit you and caused it in the first place squashed in the sheets. Or your mother or a friend will call and you'll happen to mention it and he/she'll have a good suggestion,which you'll try and it'll make the swelling go down, the pain ease up, but the leg turn blue. Or maybe you'll bump into the corner of a desk with the other knee, and it'll hurt so bad you'll forget the first one. Or......

  2. Hey! That happened to me this week! (Not yourfireant's suggestion.) I somehow injured my left foot in my sleep, and it's hurt so much to stand that I've hardly left the house. And today it's fine. Weird.

  3. Anonyboy: Yes, it is a little weird. Scarier if it actually falls off though.

    Yourfireant: You are not helping. Now I am looking for signs of blueness.

    QoWP: Ouch. I'm hoping mine will be better later. I put ice on it while I slept today and it seemed to help, but not entirely.

  4. My foot started hurting again, but then I used my Awesome Foot Bath thing, which has massage-y rollers and stuff. Now my feet are very happy. I highly recommend.

  5. I've got 2 words for you thir tee. That's just the way it is anymore (my orthopedic doctor just told me I had a "hole" in my hamstring. Thanks doc.)

  6. Piss on 30. I hate it. My knee hurts, my back hurts, my hips hurt. I'm going to need a bloody walker by 45.
